The President of Chinese Go Federation invited the monks of the monastery Linin, which is located in Hangzhou, to participate in the tournament. As it turned out, some of the monks are big fans of this game and often participate in amateur tournaments.
"For us the main thing is not to participate, but to receive internal education of the soul through the game. Go Game is not just a game, it's a whole philosophy", - commented one of our guests.
The guests from China will take part in the main and rapid tournaments. In the evening, they are planning to take a walk around the city and watch the sights. They are in St. Petersburg for the first time.
